    I believe that the food stamp program deserves the continuing support of the American taxpayer. It helps many of the poor to improve their diet and also helps domestic farmers to sell their surplus production.

    I also perceive that the use of the initials 'BO" are excessively sarcastic.

    Feed a lion, and it won't know how to hunt, and survive on its own.

    Can the people of America survive on their own?+

    Trickle up poverty is how you can describe socialist groups and would explain why even government funded poverty is increasing.

    The numbers don't make any sense. Of the hundreds of americans I know who are living on half the earned income of $60,000 only as few Americanism are eligible for food stamps because $15,000 is too high an income to get food stamps. What even more mysterious is that no illegal alien or their families are eligible for any food stamps. So how do working illegl alien mexican nationals get >$60K while americans don't?

    The disparity is not in the amount of funding to feed Americans, its the distribution of the $76,000,000,000 dollars that is causing poverty and health care crisis in the families of amreicans. The distribution of the $76 billion dollars to mexican citiznes in Mexico and the US harboring sites is affecting the lives and health of the amreican people.

    It would be much cheaper to investigate distribution than try and find more money for the americans crisis in poverty.

    * this does not reflect an educated society
    * state tests have not created an educated society
    * billions of dollars have been wasted on education
    * our citizens are on their knees to the feds
    * head start program has not lessen poverty
    * other federal programs have been a failure
    * what's going to happen when the feds can't afford to give out food stamps
